This volume analyzes intergenerational solidarity from diverse interdisciplinary angles within the social sciences. It provides analytical tools to advance research and documents how societies are adjusting to major changes that affect the core of the social fabric. With a focus on the areas of youth, family and ageing, contributions seek to advance the understanding and promotion of intergenerational solidarity. In addition, the authors propose to mainstream intergenerational solidarity in the design of social policies through the adoption of an intergenerational perspective or lens to policy making that can help attain a stable, just and harmonious society for all ages.
